When it comes to beauty products we want them made by professionals that know what they’re doing. What we normally don’t see is what these professionals are putting in our hand or face cream, makeup or hair product.

What if I told you there are toxic ingredients in cosmetics that you’re probably using right now as you’re reading this. I don’t want to freak you out and don’t worry you’re probably not going to die from it.

But my job here is to tell you about all the harmful ingredients in cosmetics and beauty products so you can avoid them or switch them for something better for your skin.

Some harmful effects of chemicals in cosmetics are allergies, acne, hormonal imbalance, even cancer. Take it as some extra knowledge you’re about to acquire, and even if you don’t use beauty products, you can warn your friends if you see them using something suspicious.

Let’s spill the tea and talk about some skincare brands to avoid. However, When in doubt about a brand always make sure to verify the ingredients list.
